Cityline | posted Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

For most, spring is the time to ditch the winter sweaters and squeeze in some time to work out — because bikini season is among us, after all. Now if that sends shivers down your spine, you are not alone!

We’re sure we can all agree that the first “outside run” of the New Year is a rough one indeed. But fear not, as we have just the motivation you need. From a trendy bracelet that doubles as a safe sun exposure app, the latest sports bra technology, and all the way to brightly coloured runners, Karine Ewart has everything you’ll need to look great and feel great while working out.

Movie Review: Godzilla

4/5 Hammers


Starring Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson

Directed by Gareth Edwards

It’s been 60 years since our favourite radioactive behemoth emerged from the Pacific Ocean and laid waste to Tokyo.  Gareth Edwards’ supersized reboot of Godzilla boasts a big budget and dazzling CGI with plenty of human drama to spare.  The results are sometimes breathtaking, even when talented actors are spewing trite dialogue in stock character roles.  Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston leads the way as a physicist who is convinced the death of his wife (an underused Juliette Binoche) in a Japanese nuclear power plant 15 years ago was caused by something far more menacing than a meltdown.  It turns out he’s right; radiation munching mutants have emerged from the depths to wreak havoc on mankind and only one thing can stop them.  Cities are once again damaged but with a surprising amount of restraint.  The film’s refreshing spin of utilizing the iconic beast as something that seeks to restore the balance of nature instead of malevolence-fueled destruction is one of the many highlights.  Edwards also cheekily teases the monster throughout the movie, a tension-building exercise absent from many of today’s blockbusters, holding off the full reveal until the viewer is practically begging for a showdown.  Once the gargantuan reptile does show up he also manages to showcase a surprising amount of personality, a testament to the visual effects wizards on the production team.  The film leaves the door wide open for more adventures with the lovable lizard and, after this rousing romp, audiences are sure to shout “BRING IT ON!”
